I love what I hear about him. He is competative. Wants to win. Sounds like he will be active in getting talent here. If this doesn't translate eventually into a title I will be beside myself as a long time Suns fan.
As long as he doesn't bring in Isiah Thomas!!!The more I read about him the more I like him. Seems to be a real sports fan and not just someone who got into sports because it was a way to make a buck. He's a former collegiate player, which is a good thing. I wouldn't be surprised if he's as knowledgeable of the NBA as some of this board is, I'd actually bet he was as least that knowledgeable of league history. I'm excited for the first time in a long time. This almost feels like the last Finals run. That was unexpected and kind of surreal, I didn't pause and take it in because it was so weird and I think that's why it didn't really hurt to lose. This feels like we'll get another chance at it, not like the Sarver years where making the playoffs would have been a nice change.
I hope Sarver takes his money and gets out of Arizona entirely. Adios a-hole! You won't be missed and your name is now a dirty word along the likes of "Horry" to Suns fans going forward.
This is not necessarily a good thing.Woj is reporting that the new owner plans on being very hands on when it comes to acquiring talent for the team. He plans on being active. This might spell trouble for James Jones or at the very least means James Jones is going to have to start being more aggressive to keep his job.
Yeah… we have to see with that kind of mentality.
I get it. I know I have reservations but that is because of Sarver. Jerry was very hands on as well. The biggest difference for me? Ishbia is said to be very knowledgeable about basketball unlike Sarver. If this means he is going to push the team to take chances? I am all for it.
It's not a bad thing either. I think it's an improvement over an owner who cared more about the accounting ledger than basketball record.
Out of curiosity, is that your boiling point for JJ? If Jones does nothing before the deadline? Just curious because it appears many fans are sick of the "running it back" approach.Yeah… we have to see with that kind of mentality.
If it means he wants to be aggressive and won’t settle, great. But if he just wants to meddle, that ain’t good either.
My hope it’s the former and if Jones sits in his hands again and does nothing to upgrade the team, those Bob Myers rumors are correct and he brings him in as new GM.
Nah… I’m already done with him. My boiling point was doing nothing over the summer then whatever happened with this Crowder stupidity.Out of curiosity, is that your boiling point for JJ?
